Summer Camp 2021

2021-2022 Day Camps coming soon!

2021 Summer Camps

Our camps are led by experienced Museum educators. Our team approach implements creativity, collaboration, critical thinking, and communication into each day’s lesson plan. From encounters with wildlife to exploring cultural heritage, your child will have an enriching camp experience at the Museum. Camps are designed and offered to children by GRADE COMPLETED in Kindergarten- 5th grade and Jr. CITs (6th-8th graders).

REGISTRATIONS

Online registration will close at 12 p.m. on the Friday prior to each camp. Registration is on a first come, first served basis. Early registration is recommended.

You will receive an email the Friday before camp starts that details what the campers will be doing that week.

If a camp is sold out, then please email registrations@tallahasseemuseum.org to get on the waiting list.

We understand that changes arise in scheduling and therefore allow for one change in date and time no less than 2 weeks prior to the camp date. A $25 administrative fee for program date/time change is applied to any change made in addition to the allowed change, or one that is less than 2 weeks prior. Please see the “Parent Handbook” for more information.
